Turner gets another night off

PHOENIX -- Mets second baseman Justin Turner sat out a second straight game on Saturday to nurse a medley of injuries, but is expected to be back in the lineup on Sunday.

"I think he'll be fine," manager Terry Collins said.

In addition to being hit on the toe with a pitch in Thursday's game, Turner is nursing a sore right hip flexor that he first injured last month, prompting this weekend's two-game furlough. Collins also plans to rest his second baseman at least once next week.
